An outline planning application for housing on the Longmoor site has been submitted to Bristol City Council and North Somerset Council. This is alongside a planning application to Bristol City Council for the Sporting Quarter at Ashton Gate.

The Longmoor site is located between Silbury Road, David Lloyd Leisure Centre, the Cala Trading Estate, the Long Ashton Park & Ride and metrobus line.

The development will capture a biodiversity net gain, has increased protection for habitats and fauna as well as improved connections for pedestrians and cyclists.

The southern field will not be built on – instead we will work with local wildlife organisations and residents to enhance this space for the benefit of wildlife and the community. If you have any suggestions or comments please email hello@ashtongate.co.uk .

To view and comment on the application, please go to Bristol City Council’s planning portal here.

The application includes more than 70 reports and documents. The key ones include the design and access statement, planning statement and transport assessments.
